What we're about
ABWA is a premier women's organization. We support members through education, networking support, leadership opportunities, and local and national recognition. All women (and men) are welcome: Working for employers, business owners, looking for work (and mentors), students, and women who wish to remain active in retirement.
Meet area professional women and learn more about ABWA and the benefits it offers! Our local meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at the Livonia Chamber of Commerce at 33300 Five Mile Road, Suite 212, in Livonia with networking and dinner at 6:00 p.m. Introductions begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a business-relevant speaker (always awesome!) and a short business meeting (cost is $15 online using PayPal or credit card - includes dinner).
Prepaid reservations are required - visit our Events page at www.novi-abwa.org/events.
There is also an alternate Zoom option for attending each meeting that starts at 6:30 p.m. at no cost.
Our local Novi Oaks scholarships for women are offered every year, including two $2,000 Impact Scholarships for Michigan residents, and a $1,000 scholarship for students of Madonna University. Contact us at NoviOaks.email@example.com - the deadline to complete the application for the Novi Oaks Impact Scholarships is May 15 each year. Detailed guidelines can be downloaded on our Scholarships and Education page.
ABWA National scholarships for women of up to $10,000 are offered through the ABWA National Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund at www.sbmef.org, and applications open in October of each year.
